    North of NYC North of NYC By Houlihan Lawrence By Houlihan Lawrence by

    There's something exciting about a snow day that brings out the perpetual child in all of us. In our wired world where working remotely has never been easier, hunkering down and getting down to business are hardly mutually exclusive, and always the wise alternative to traffic treachery and delayed train schedules. Here are some of the most demure dens and sumptuous studies in New York City's northern suburbs to remote office in style:

    GARRISON | 107 South Highland Road
    Coffee, laptops and motorcycles are already known friends in the Hudson Valley, and this bold Modernist, soaring above the Hudson Highlands from its mountaintop perch, brings it all home. Floor-to-ceiling glass in this open hideaway provides a peek at the weather outside, no matter how frightful it is. See more

    OLD GREENWICH 186 Shore Road
    You could spot icebergs in Long Island Sound anchoring through a blizzard in this crow's nest. Nestled into the turret of a chic coastal stunner with six bedrooms, and indoor/outdoor living room and Christopher Peacock kitchen, this hidden nook offers the perfect sequester with its calming vibes, toasty fireplace and views out to Long Island Sound. See more

    STUYVESANT | 1081 Route 9J
    Dating to 1803, this Georgian classic in Columbia County channels the energy of the illustrious magnates and moguls who built grand mansions on the mighty Hudson's banks. While the home's 4-1/2 acre setting is enough of a sight to behold, the private den is a lavish canvas for an office-away-from-office, restored to include its original bookshelves and roaring fireplace. See more

    BRONXVILLE 28 Valley Road
    Within stone walls salvaged from an 18th century convent in Bourgogne (the home's construction materials were shipped from France by the container load), this clean-lined libary is warmed by both full-length windows and a roaring fireplace, its open hearth framed by an antique wood mantle. Limestone floors and wood-beamed ceilings round out the rustic minimalism. See more
